Qlik Sense Review

It can analyze huge quantities of data. Predictive analysis is still not available.

What is most valuable?

It uses an associative engine + an in-memory environment:

  • I don't have to calculate hypercubes.
  • Allows data exploration in directions not predefined.
  • Can analyze huge quantities of data.

What needs improvement?

Predictive analysis is still not available and we need a different approach toward data analysis.

For how long have I used the solution?

We have been using Qlik Sense for a few months, and QlikView for four years.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

We only encountered deployment issues with Qlik Sense Server, because it's an enterprise product and needs to be strongly configured.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We had no problems with scaling.

How are customer service and technical support?

Technical support is poor: We definitely use community support.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I used Pentaho and SpagoBI for a while, but they were unstable, due to Java versions and application server environments (Tomcat, GlassFish, NetBeans and so on).

How was the initial setup?

For Qlik, we started with very simple setups. Then, through strong field experience, we approached more complex scenarios.

What about the implementation team?

We implemented it in-house. We designed a set of implementation rules.

What was our ROI?

ROI is good because of short time-to-market.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Pricing is according to Qlik license fees and an applied partner discount.

What other advice do I have?

Take practice courses and use community suggestions.
